b10-xfrin creates empty zone when first download fails

When you:

1) Let b10-xfrin download a new zone (that doesn't exist yet in the database)
2) Make the transfer fail (tried with validation, but I suspect broken transfer or TSIG will do the same effect)

The database will now contain a zone with no records in it. The zone is created outside of the transaction. When the transfer fails, the transaction that filled in some records is rolled back, but the zone stays. This probably also means the empty zone is present for the whole time when the zone is being downloaded (even when the download is then successful), which is a smaller problem than leaving it there forever, but it still doesn't sound exactly right.

Do you have a proposal how to fix it? I think this depends on the discussion on
the mailing list I just started (Subject: Creation of zone in DB (again)).
